DUNMANWAY’S Darren Sweetnam has been added to the Ireland rugby squad for the clash with Canada at the Aviva Stadium next Saturday.

The West Cork man (23) is one of six players added to the squad of 34 originally named ahead of the test match against New Zealand in Chicago last Saturday – a match Ireland won 40-29.

Niyi Adeolokun, Tiernan O'Halloran (Connacht), Dave Kilcoyne, Jack O'Donoghue, Darren Sweetnam (Munster) and Dan Leavy (Leinster) have joined the squad today at Carton House.

Jordi Murphy leaves the squad after damaging the ACL in his left knee which rules him out of action for between 6-9 months.

Tickets remain available on for the Canada fixture.
